Thank you for taking the time to read this introduction.


It is very important to understand that murals are more than just paintings on walls.

They are neither billboards nor wallpaper. For example, painting "the mural" on a piece

of canvas at some studio in California, and after rolling it in a mailing tube, sending

it for pasting to a distant location elsewhere should be a disturbing concept for any

professionally trained muralist. Unlike easel paintings, murals must be regarded

and created as integral visual elements of the architecture to which they apply.

This requires their execution to be performed on location and that is why this artist

always insists to work in this manner which enables him to evaluate the work

throughout its evolution, taking in consideration immediate influential components

such as the prevailing mood and style of the architecture, the dominant surrounding

coloration, various observational points, the ever-changing lighting conditions, etc.

This provides for the completed artwork to become an aesthetic complement to the

architecture and not just a motley patch frivolously thrown into the building

environment. Working in such manner may not always be the most cost or time

efficient process but with time none of these will matter to the viewer, and no

accounting efficiency will neither justify nor excuse any aesthetic flaws of the artwork.
